School Board Candidate Forum @ Rough Draft
Join us at 6 p.m. Wednesday for an informal gathering to meet candidates* for the Kingston City School District Board of Education. This is a great opportunity to hear why these community members believe they should be elected to hold a three-year term on the BOE. There will be time to ask questions and mingle one-on-one, and a Spanish interpreter will be available. This year’s election, as well as the budget and capital project vote, will be held May 16 at district elementary schools from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you need more information about voting, please contact KCSD District Clerk Karen Seery. This event is organized by The Committee for Equity in Education, a local, all-volunteer group.
*While all candidates have been invited, several have so far been unwilling to commit; one candidate has openly declined because he is “done with the nonsense uptown.” However, we believe in giving an opportunity to the candidates who do want to contrast themselves with the empty chairs. If you’re a candidate who has yet to RSVP, we’d love to have you!
